"How do you like our city, Louie?" King Winston called out, referring to Whelpsville. The Great Dane was with his entourage and walking through the streets, showing...

Who could have guessed that there was a city underneath the Superstition Mountains- populated solely by dogs?

We walked out of the cave onto a landing that overlooked a bustling...

So this is what a treasure hunt is like.

Although the caves below the Superstition Mountains were spooky, we kept our spirits up by doing what dogs do in these situations.  We...

Disingenuous. Outrageous. Gigolo.

These were the headlines splashed on every newspaper and barked across the talk radio airwaves.  The whiff of scandal was in the air and every...

A Brewing Scandal Is Stirred

Life on the campaign trail had been filled with kissing puppies and non-stop speeches for days on end. The "Take Back the Doghouse!" rallying cry had begun to...

Dog Catcher or Bust

There are moments in a dog's life that galvanizes him into action.  I had come to a crossroads.  It was time to be serious.  It was time to announce my candidacy for dog catcher.
"That's dumb," Delfina said while looking up from her book. She was tucked into an overstuffed pillow.  "You can't possibly think you could get...

Fillet, R.I.P.

Posted by Louie, 27 May 2009 - - - - - - · 469 views

The room was silent, filled with a somber air.  Everyone wore long faces. Which I guess, on second thought, is easy for an Italian Greyhound.
Lying on the makeshift alter was the inanimate goldfish that once was Fillet. Abby held my paw for comfort. I sobbed softly and blew my nose into a hanky.
"Would anyone like to say any words," Delfina asked...

Louie Gets A Pet

Posted by Louie, 24 May 2009 - - - - - - · 257 views

I can't believe it. I can't believe I actually have my own pet now.
As part of my birthday, my owners thought it was time I learned responsibility by taking care of a pet. I already have to pick up my toys and make my bed. Do I really have to feed and ugh, clean up after someone else too?
"Whatcha got there?," Abby asked excitedly. She...

Canolis, pupcakes, and snickerpoodles surrounded me.  All my friends were there, looking at me, ready to play at my command.  Billowy clouds dotted the sky and Sinatra's voice wafted through the air. I was in a blissful state.
"Hey wake up," a voice shot out of nowhere. "You're going to miss your big day."
Lemme sleep.  I was...

Beating the Napoleon Complex

"I'm turning Japanese. I think I'm turning Japanese. I really think so!" I sang as I trotted into the studio. The cast was regrouping to shoot the pilot episode.
"Why are you in such a good mood?" Gregio asked. He was slouched on the casting couch and munching on biscotti. Everyone was in the room, relaxing.
"Have you...

The To Do List

It's not as if I want to jump out of a plane or run with the bulls.  But I do need to have certain milestones in my life, like goals and stuff. Can I learn Texas Hold 'Em? Sure, if these dogs could play cards, why not...

IGs Undercover: The Genesis

"... and this is Abby who graduated from the prestigious Porterhouse University and is a gymnist," the reality tv producer said.  The four that made the cut were assembled in the casting room. In addition to Abby, there was Delfina, the IG historian and Gregio, the avant-garde artist from Greenwich Village.
"Last but not least, there's...

The Tao of Lou(ie)

Posted by Louie, 06 May 2009 - - - - - - · 267 views

It was a big day, to be sure. I was going to see my mentor, my sage. I ran to the mirror and stared at the image. That is one handsome man, I mean dog.  Sometimes I forget I walk on four feet.

When I got to his house, Russo answered the door. Vaguely acknowledging my presence, he turned and solemnly walked back to lay down.  I scurried after him,...

"Louie? Are you Louie "Zamboni" Wilson?"
I had just stepped out of the house. Jeez, can't I just go anywhere without attracting attention? I turned and watched as two men approached me. They were sharply dressed and smiling with hands extended to shake my paw. Their teeth were so bright, I could almost see myself in them. Nice...

Louie, Esq.- I Believe in You!

Posted by Louie, 29 April 2009 - - - - - - · 304 views

Play with ME! Let's wrestle. Fetch? Walk ME! C'mon, c'mon, C'MON! My insistence had gone unnoticed and fallen on deaf ears. It was morning and I wanted to play.  Everyone was rushing to get ready for work.  Work, schmurk.

My owners were rushing around, gave me a quick pat and kiss before hustling out the door. For a minute I...

Meet Whirley, the bloodhound.  By far, he was one of the coolest guys around.  His face was all wrinkled and when we first met he stared with his droopy eyes and sighed, "Kid, you're going to have to take it...

A Machiavellian Tail

Others ask me how I learned to dominate the lives of my owners so quickly and with masterful skill. From Nicolli Machiavelli, of course. He’s only one of the most renowned Italians to influence Western civilization and political thought.

I draw a lot of inspiration from his writings and translate them into daily life. For instance, he states: “He who...

I suffered a traumatic experience recently. I didn’t want to talk about it because I had faith that it would have a happy ending — and it did! My beloved gecko’s squeeker had popped! My sharp teeth finally pierced my favorite toy and it would no longer squeek....

So I’m hanging out at the park, right? Just putting out the vibe and trying to meet the ladies. A Border Collie trotted over and we struck up a conversation. I’ll translate for all the humans reading this:
